You can read it here. If you don’t want to click, some key takeaways are:
- We disagree with how marijuana policy is being shaped in the Commonwealth.
- The science is clear; marijuana, specifically the psychoactive chemical THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol), has the potential to do significant harm to public health.
- Diversion of high THC products (≥10%), vapes and edibles, to MA youth is a growing concern.
- When public health is not prioritized in the regulation of addictive substances, the public and our young people are put at risk.
You can also find in the statement a list of negative effects of THC. This is all signed by a dozen+ doctors. The various marijuana players with zero medical knowledge will probably dismiss the experts’ opinion with, at best, a shrug. Instead, they are looking into opening marijuana cafes. And the first marijuana retail store will open in Newton this Saturday.
